    I'm really confused and this is a bit complicated so I'll try to make everything as clear as possible.

    I've applied for politics courses at Lancaster University and UCLan (3 at Lancaster, one at UCLan). However, with everything going on at the moment I'm becoming really tired of politics and don't think I can commit myself to studying it for 3 years. Because I applied for politics courses, my personal statement is about politics.
    I know I want to go to Lancaster and I've recieved offers from them for the courses I've applied to. I'm not 100% sure what I'd like to do but the Criminology and Sociology courses look really interesting to me.
    Is there anything I can do in relation to changing courses at this point? I'm going to get a meeting with the careers advisor at sixth form but this could take over a week.

    Ring them tomorrow morning and ask if they'll consider you for another course.

    They'll either say "no problem you're in", "no problem we'll let you know " or "nope we can't do that ".

    Whatever the answer you can then make a decision with a full set of information.
